ABC News President David Westin: Job Well Done

Westin’s email:

Our colleagues in digital have just had another great month. In January, ABCNEWS.com beat all its previous records in unique visitors, reaching 27.4 million different people, some 24 percent more than a year ago. Our site had 218 million page views, and video views increased 26 percent from December 2009. In addition, ABC News Mobile properties had the highest page views on record for the second month in a row, increasing 52 percent in page views versus 2009.

Many sections on ABCNEWS.com had double-digit traffic growth over 2009, including Good Morning America (54 percent), World News with Diane Sawyer (62 percent), Nightline (51 percent), and the Blotter (86 percent). 20/20 (186 percent) and Primetime (148 percent) had triple-digit growth.

This week we also announced that ABC News programming will be featured on Hulu. The new ABC News channel will feature short-form news content and long-form programming from morning to night, including GMA, World News with Diane Sawyer, Nightline, This Week, 20/20, and Primetime limited series.

Congratulations to the entire digital team on the great results from all of their hard work. And I know they’d be the first to acknowledge that none of it would have been possible without the strong support they receive every day from people throughout all of ABC News.
